I know at least a half dozen couples that went through that process in really life.

Those are Meta jokes referencing the 1st season being out of order

OK? I'm not saying it's some kind of impossible development; I'm just pointing out that we both noticed Hulu clearly horsefeathers something up in how they have, like, 4-5 episodes in a row that are wildly back and forth in terms of the continuity the show itself was trying to follow.

"More like a METRA joke! Because Chicago!"

*Everybody groans and does a triple take*

*Adam Pally, in 2013, inexplicably channels Robin Williams' "black guy voice" AND "gay guy voice" for the bajillionth time*

The sandwiches all look pretty damn delicious, so that's a big plus.

And I might be bitter that everyone is calling season 3 Adam Pally fat when that's basically what I've gotten myself to look like some 150+ pounds lost later.

Maybe I AM just too hungry when I watch this dumb show. Then they make some stupid joke about Alex eating mountains of food and I just see flashes and black out.

I actually never really noticed it on the first season, I only noticed it on the second season. Also it's been a while, but I thought it got cancelled after it's second season?

Anyone else check out the Andre the Giant documentary on HBO? I thought it was pretty good.

It is weird to think back when I was a kid and how it seemed like everyone my age just kinda knew who he was. Like, none of us were ever really into wrestling outside of sometimes playing wrestling video games, but he somehow was this dude who was crazy famous for being gigantic.

The Princess Bride had no small part in that

Definitely, but this was even before that. It was very odd.

Just watched it last night. It was awesome. And I knew who Andre the Giant was as a 6 year old, before my family moved to the US (and before the Princess Bride). I didn't give a fig about wrestling, but he was just a dude you knew about.

I learned about Andre the Giant, Hulk Hogan and Macho Man Randy Savage from my parents' friends' kid who had little figurines of them and the ring and all that cool kid horsefeathers.

Speaking of Andre and the Princess Bride...just saw this linked to on Reddit...

During the shoot, which Elwes said lasted for about a month-and-a-half, the cast and crew grew very close. "I can't remember a day without laughter," he said. Reiner acted as the father of the group, hosting dinners for the cast and encouraging game nights and other hang outs. One indication that the group was going to jell came on the first day, Elwes said, when wrestler André the Giant, who played Fezzik in the movie, "let out a 16 second fart and brought production to a standstill." "It could be heard three counties away," Elwes said with a laugh. "Nobody said anything except Rob, who said 'Are you OK, André?' and André replied, 'I am now boss.' He was comfortable enough to do that!"

I never was into wrestling but I did watch Wrestlemania 2, which featured The Fridge and I know Andre the Giant was there and that was the first time I heard of him

A cousin of mine had a Andre the Giant phobia when we were kids. If Andre appeared on the tv, he would start trembling/crying uncontrollably.

I started 30 Rock again last night. I don't think I ever finished the last season or two, and Jane Krakowski suggesting they may be up for getting back together had me wanting to watch it again. Still great.

You can definitely tell the difference between pre-accident and post-accident Tracy Morgan though.
